The Lovereading4Kids comment

A charming friendly little tale about a group of dogs who unwittingly find themselves on an adventure. Misty the border collie and assorted friends attempt to do a good deed, but are in danger of being accused of dognapping an excitable puppy on board a canal boat. David J. Robertson ensures the group use teamwork and a lot of determination, to overcome the obstacles in their path, but can they save themselves from be washed out to sea? The text dominates the page, with the occasional illustrations by Ian R. Ward adding a bright splash of colour and visual amusement. ‘Dognapped!’ is a fun read, with dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages, all working together to save the day. ~ Liz Robinson


Dognapped! by David J. Robertson

Join Misty and her three doggy friends on what was meant to be a relaxed day of exploring. But with trouble never too far away from the four canines, it's not long before they find themselves accidentally adrift on a canal boat with the boat's reluctant puppy, Ashley! Trying to steer the boat back to shore, the friends find themselves in hot water. It looks like they have become pirates for real as they hear on the radio that Ashley is reported as being dognapped! If you're going to be in BIG trouble it surely doesn't come much worse than that! Can they prove their innocence when Ashley is returned? Can they even make it back to shore safely? Whatever happens, it's going to be an adventure to remember! Dognapped! is a hilarious tale of over-inquisitive dogs, confused humans and adventure at sea. It will appeal to children aged 7-9.
